SAUTER – Crown Type Tool Turrets...-Image

In a class of their own for mass production with a widely diversified range of applications.

The SAUTER family of "Crown-Type Live Tool Turrets", typically used on multi-station and in-line transfer machines has recently been upgraded and expanded, with the largest having a standard drive motor rating of up to 20 hp.

This "series" of ultra high-speed and agile Tool Turrets uses a single motor for both Turret indexing and live tool drive. Available with four, six or eight tool positions that are complemented with a wide variety of standard "off-the-shelf" tool spindles, which use HSK quick-change toolholding adaptors. Multi-tool and special tool spindles are also available to meet specific application requirements.

The Crown-Type Tool Turrets can be used in any orientation and are lubricated for life, alternatively, they can be connected to a central lubrication system, extending MTBF and reducing maintenance. With a rugged design and standard features such as tool speeds up to 15,000 rpm, bi-directional high-speed indexing, a non-lifting tool carrier, high-speed/high-torque tool spindles and an integral high-pressure coolant distribution system, these Tool Turrets are the best choice for medium and high-volume production machines for all industries. 

They are perfectly suited in machining stations on transfer lines, dial machines and special purpose machinery and have been particularly successful in the automotive, appliance and aircraft component industries – as well as in many other areas involving high-performance cutting operations.

*Optional compact synchronous drive motors (compatible with most controls) that minimize acceleration and deceleration rates and drastically reduce chip-to-chip times are also available.
